General NFL Free Agency Thread


Recommended Posts

A little bit of free agent related news this morning.

Former Panther Andrew Norwell took a pay cut to stay with the Jaguars. He won't be a free agent.

The Ravens agreed to terms with guard Kevin Zeitler who'd been released by the Giants.

Two guards---and what do I hope we get out of this free agency?  2 guards (and a CB).

Same, but both of these guys still ended up getting more than we wanted to spend, so no big loss.

Like jags were gonna cut norwell unless he took a paycut and they have the most cap space in the league.

A pay cut was reasonable since he was overpaid by a prior GM.

To be fair though, he's still making well above vet minimum.

His new deal still makes him a top 10 paid LG with the guaranteed money and as high as the #3 paid LG if he hits the escalators. He's good, they just paid him to be great on that initial contract.

Yeah I just looked up he was their best olineman last year but years before I remember reading their fans were really sour on him. He had some injuries and wasn’t playing well. My mistake.

You'd be sour on a newly acquired FA for being good when he was paid to be great too. So would I. Mike Wahle is a great Panthers comp.
